Interesting Comments From Texas AD.

DeLoss Dodds University of Texas Atheltic Director had some intersting quotes in the lobby of the InterContinental Hotel on the Plaza today, where the Big 12 summer meetings are being held.

Here is a couple of things Dodd said.

“We did not start this,” Dodds told The Kansas City Star in response to questions put to him Tuesday afternoon in the lobby of the InterContinental Hotel on the Plaza. “If we need to finish it, we’ll finish it. We’re going to be a player in whatever happens.”

Dodds addresses the loyality issues.

Asked directly about criticism of Missouri and Nebraska within the Big 12, Dodds denied either school was being disloyal.
“Everybody stays ready,” said Dodds, the head of the Big 12‘s most successful and powerful athletic program. “Everybody figures out what’s best for them and get options."
That includes Texas, Dodds said.
“We’re watching what’s happening with the Big Ten, probably to a lesser degree to the Southeast Conference,” Dodds said. “If the landscape is going to change, we’re going to be a part of it and be a viable part of it. Texas will come out of it in good shape.”

I find these comments to be very interesting. For the enitre article from kansascity.com click here.
